German plans to support the retrofitting of municipal and commercial diesel vehicles have been found by the Commission to be in line with EU State aid rules.
The three support schemes that Germany intends to set up, with an overall budget of around €431 million, will support the retrofitting of municipal and commercial vehicles, such as cleaning vehicles, garbage trucks and delivery vehicles, equipped with diesel engines.
The measures are in line with the Commission’s 2018 Communication on “A Europe that protects: Clean air for all”, as well as a part of the German Federal Government’s “Immediate Clean Air Programme for 2017-2020” and should contribute to reducing nitrogen oxides emissions by 1,450 tonnes per year, while limiting distortions of competition.
